Paso Robles Half Marathon registration now open 

Discounted registration fees available for PRJUSD staff and students

–The 4A Foundation for Paso Robles Schools is pleased to announce the new Pacific Premier Bank Paso Robles Half Marathon. The new and improved “Paso Half” is a combination of the original Harvest Half Marathon and family-friendly Heritage Oaks Bank Fun Run. The new Paso Half will begin and end at the Downtown City Park and will feature activities for all ages including a half marathon, 5K race, family mile, kids’ dash, diaper dash, and festival with live music and famous Paso wine and craft beer.

The Paso Half is being organized by the 4A Foundation for Paso Robles Schools in conjunction with Race SLO. Pacific Premier Bank is the title sponsor. All proceeds will benefit the students in Paso Robles. This is a family-friendly weekend and runners of all ages and abilities are welcome to participate. One hundred percent of race proceeds benefit the 4A Foundation for Paso Robles Schools, a non-profit supporting academics, arts, athletics, and agriculture programs in Paso Robles Joint Unified School District.

Whether you are running in a race, cheering on runners, or are looking for something to do with your family, the Paso Half is the place to be. The weekend begins on Saturday, Nov. 11, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Downtown City Park, with packet pick-up, race registration, vendor booths, and free activities for kids.

Race day is Sunday, Nov. 12, with all races starting and finishing at the Downtown City Park. The half marathon begins at 7 a.m. and features a new course that makes its way east through the city of Paso Robles and utilizes many existing running paths. All participants receive a t-shirt and finisher’s medal while winners in each age group go home with a bottle of Paso Robles wine.

The Paso Half is also the home of the new San Luis Obispo County Elementary Cross Country Championships. Children ages six to eleven who are running the family mile will automatically be entered into the championships for a chance to be crowned fastest in the county. Children who place in the top three will receive a unique SLO County champion award. This race begins at 9:30 a.m.

On race day, the Downtown City Park will be home to the race festival from 6 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The festival will feature live music, free activities for kids, hot breakfast, beer and wine, and various vendor booths.
